With the release of the Battlescroll: Galletian Reinforcements I’ve been able to go back through the data from the release of the General’s Handbook and tidy everything up. In doing so, I though it may be cool to give you a run-down of how each faction performed under the current General’s Handbook until the Battlescroll took effect.
The data used for analysing these results was taken from 110 Grand Tournaments between 3rd July 2022 and 6th November 2022.
Daughters of Khaine
Region Comparison – Popularity
Daughters of Khaine saw their highest popularity in UK & Ireland with 6.7% of players choosing the faction for tournament play, while over the Atlantic the uptake was only 5.0% in North America.
Region Comparison – Win Rates
Oceania led the win rates with 57.8%. While players in Europe could only manage 47.3%.
North America, UK & Ireland and Europe saw the Daughters claim 5-0’s in all those regions. While in Scandanavia and Oceania they managed 4-1’s
Although the Daughters of Khaine in general fall below the 55% upper bracket, both Khailebron and Hagg Nar breach that with 55.26% and 55.25% respectively.
Top 10 Daughters if Khaine Players
You may notice that some players have a better World/Nation ranking than players above them in this table. This is due to players playing with multiple factions. These players have been ranked on their top 4 Daughters of Khaine results only.
Our second guest commentator this week is Boondocksgame, also from our Discord chat.
Wargames for Warriors took place in Utah, USA on 11th and 12th June. It involved 22 players vying to be crowned champion in a 5 game tournament.
Before I jump into the Top Three, I wanted to remind everyone of our friendly Discord server where you can join in the conversation with the Woehammer crew and suggest articles or series for the website.
Also if there’s a one day or two day tournament you’d like us to cover drop us a comment on this post and we’ll have a look at it for you.
Allegiance: Legion of the First Prince – Grand Strategy: Prized Sorcery – Triumphs:
Leaders Be’Lakor, the Dark Master (360)** – General – Lore of Ruinous Sorcery: The Master’s Command Slaves to Darkness Daemon Prince (210)** – Axe – Mark of Chaos: Khorne The Contorted Epitome (255)** – Universal Spell Lore: Flaming Weapon – Artifact: Fourfold Blade Kairos Fateweaver (435) – Lore of Ruinous Sorcery: The Master’s Command
Battleline 10 x Pink Horrors of Tzeentch (250)* 10 x Pink Horrors of Tzeentch (250)* 5 x Flesh Hounds (105)**
Boon: Ah yes. The Be’Lakor/Kairos/Khorne Daemon Prince combo. About as close as you can get to playing a blue deck in Age of Sigmar. With Be’Lakor shutting down the big threat on the board with what I call his ‘No’ ability, Kairos telling mages no and then eating any endless spells that get through, and the Daemon prince reducing charges by half it is hard to get into the army to deal damage. And lets not forget about the massive tarpit that are Horrors. Knocking out a large chunk in one swing only for your opponent to put down double the amount of models that you just killed is really something on morale. Glad I didn’t have to play this list.
Army Faction: Daughters of Khaine – Subfaction: Khelt Nar – Grand Strategy: Bloodthirsty Zealots – Triumph: Bloodthirsty
LEADERS The Shadow Queen (680) Melusai Ironscale (115)* – General – Command Traits: Zealous Orator – Artefacts of Power: Crown of Woe Morathi-Khaine (680)* Hag Queen on Cauldron of Blood (270)* – Prayers: Sacrament of Blood
Boon: It’s really hard to take someone seriously when they push around a cart that has someone T-posing on it. Little bit easier when they rain down arrows on you and then a giant snake lady who is at the same time not a giant snake lady is beating your face in. Blood Stalkers dealing Mortals from range with Melusia and Blood Sisters dealing with melee. Getting a little of the best of both worlds with this list and in a terrifying yet oddly arousing way. Morathi call me sometime.
Allegiance: Nighthaunt – Procession: Emerald Host – Grand Strategy: Hold the Line – Triumphs: Bloodthirsty
Leaders Guardian of Souls (150)* – General – Command Trait: Master of Magic – Artefact: Arcane Tome (Universal Artefact) – Lore of the Underworlds: Seal of Shyish Krulghast Cruciator (150)* – Artefact: Lightshard of the Harvest Moon Lady Olynder, Mortarch of Grief (340)* – Lore of the Underworlds: Shademist Spirit Torment (115)***
Battleline 3 x Spirit Hosts (125)*** 3 x Spirit Hosts (125)*** 20 x Grimghast Reapers (320)** – Reinforced x 1 20 x Grimghast Reapers (320)** – Reinforced x 1
Units 10 x Dreadscythe Harridans (160)** 2 x Chainghasts (95)***
Boon: Spooky ghosts are back… AND THEY”RE PISSED!!! Glad to see Nighthaunt up at the top with their new book. A LOT of auras being thrown around, or I guess floated around, and frankly I find them even more terrifying than the fact that they are ghosts. Gonna have to call someone if they get too close to me…
Allegiance: Slaves to Darkness – Damned Legion: Ravagers – Grand Strategy: Prized Sorcery – Triumphs: Inspired
Leaders Archaon the Everchosen (860)* – Aura of Chaos: Tzeentch – Ravagers Command Trait: Master of Deception – Spell: Ruinous Vigour – Spell: Binding Damnation Chaos Sorcerer Lord (135)** – General – Command Trait: Unquestioned Resolve – Artefact: Arcane Tome (Universal Artefact) – Mark of Chaos: Tzeentch – Ravagers Command Trait: Unquestioned Resolve – Spell: Binding Damnation – Spell: Mask of Darkness Gaunt Summoner on Disc of Tzeentch (230)* – Ravagers Command Trait: Master of Magic – Spell: Whispers of Chaos – Universal Spell Lore: Ghost-mist Darkoath Chieftain (85)** – Mark of Chaos: Khorne – Ravagers Command Trait: Skilled Leader Bloodsecrator (125)** – Allies Bloodstoker (85)* – Allies
Battleline 16 x Iron Golems (150)** – Mark of Chaos: Tzeentch – Reinforced x 1 8 x Scions of the Flame (75)** – Mark of Chaos: Tzeentch 1 x Chaos Chariots (100)** – Greatblades – Mark of Chaos: Khorne
Units 10 x Splintered Fang (75)** – Mark of Chaos: Khorne 10 x Splintered Fang (75)** – Mark of Chaos: Khorne
Boon: The absolute massive chaos lad comes in at a respectable 6th. Having Be’Lakor come higher than him might put a damper on his ‘Notice me senpais’ competition he’s in for the favor of the chaos gods but like it’ll be ok, probably. A tough as nails hero to take down with a good supporting cast to back him up it’ll be no time before he’s winning his ‘friendly’ competition with Be’Lakor.
